Trade Dollar article in Coin World

Post by RogerB » Sun Feb 14, 2021 10:28 pm

For those who have branched out into Trade dollars this article, titled "Proof Trade Dollars Continued After Coinage Was Discontinued," might be of interest. The article explores continued manufacture of proof Trade dollars after commercial production was halted.

This might be of interest to Trade dollar collectors and as something of an "insider" view of how things worked in the Treasury Department and Mint Bureau. The article is based on continuing research into restriking and sale of pattern and circulation coins from about 1836 to 1885.

The author.

Watching for it. Don't see it on the website yet.

I have been steadily cataloguing the die varieties of the series.

One small fact not in the article: From 1873-1878 Trade dollars were included in the Annual Assay Commission coins. From 1879-1885 no Trade dollars were included. The Assay Commission did not examine medals.
